Paste Magazine Showcases Ohio Bands to Watch




Paste Magazine, a music lover site that dives through the lower frequencies and comes topside with cool new bands so you don't have to, is sending Ohio a little love today.

The site's ongoing 50 States Project is a cross country march offering up sampler platters of new bands from each chunk of the union. Today, the site is fixing it's eye on the Buckeye State, presenting “10 Ohio Bands You Should Listen to Now.”

Not a lot of Cleveland on the list, though – only Cloud Nothings and folk rockers The Lighthouse and the Whaler. None the less, worth plugging in for.
